Abstract:
This paper presents guidelines for the strut-tie design of pretensioned concrete members. The design of a pretensioned single-tee with draped strands is illustrated using a full member strut-tie approach. The results of the full member strut-tie design are compared with those of current ACI section-by-section design recommendations.
